YESTERDAY'S QUIZ :
In your own words, what does it mean when Isaiah says "I delight greatly in the Lord"? What does it mean to "delight" in the Lord?
From Don Nolte: Delight means great joy. He took great joy in the fact that he had a God who was his salvation. One he could worship and follow. The same is our great delight to worship in God's house to praise Him for all the wonderful things He has done for us.
TODAY'S QUIZ: Why is Jeremiah called the "weeping prophet"?

ALEC AND RACHEL FISHER'S LAST SUNDAY WITH US WILL BE THIS SUNDAY, JULY 30!!
Alec Fisher (the guy who preached while I was on vacation) has received a call to be a pastor in Maryland, therefore Rachel Fisher's (our organist) last Sunday to play organ and violin for us will be July 30. We would like to thank them both for their service to St. John's these past two years with cards and gifts on that day. Please consider bringing a gift to the 5th Sunday celebration on Sunday, July 30 at 11am to show them your appreciation! They, along with their beautiful children, will both be greatly missed.
